Abstract [en]

The contemporary Swedish system for quality assurance of higher education has been strongly criticized. The main critique has been that it only focuses on a measurement of the results and that it has been difficult to use in the development of higher education. The government´s answer to this critique has been that the question on development of education – and hence the development of its prerequisites and processes – is owned by the universities themselves. However, from 2016 and on the system will be changed. A suggestion for how this will be designed and organized will be presented in December 2014. In this presentation, I will discuss and compare the contemporary system with the suggestion for a new one. The presentation will start in a difference between two visions often formulated in the discussion about quality assurance systems. On the one hand, some stress that the research should be assessed and discussed between colleagues. On the other hand, there are those who demand that quality must be measured by "objective" measures. The presentation will focus especially on the evaluation of Didactics, Education and Teacher Education.
